    Hello!

    This is to inform you that Automic released a Upgrade Checker for Automation Engine Major or Minor Version Updates.

    The article “Upgrade Checker for Automation Engine Updates” in the “Automic Customer Portal” makes it available for the whole Automic community and gives a quick guidance on how to use it.

    Portal Article Link: https://automic.force.com/support/apex/CommunityArticleDetail?id=ka4b0000000fxjb

    KR, Josef


    Update October 2017:

    The latest version of the Upgrade Checker is now available at the marketplace. It supports currently all v11.x and v12.x versions:

    https://marketplace.automic.com/details/upgrade-checker

     

    This article above is still published to make the tool available for Automation Engine version 10.

    This is a very useful and helpful "tool" for customers looking for a list of changes between the version they are currently on and the version they are planning to upgrade to!

    eg: What are the changes between version 10.0.8 and 11.2.2 ?

    When you run this, you will get an email with a list and description of the changes/differences between the two versions, a "short" list of objects affected, and recommendation on how to get around it.

    Implemented on V10 with V10 capabilities. Hence the answer is NO.

    Hi Josef, leider ist der Checker auf Version 10.0.2 nicht lauffähig. (Case REQ00129496). Einige SQLIs lassen sich mit Vorschau abfragen. Aber es gibt seitens Automic keinerlei Beschreibung oder Hilfe.

    Hat nochjemand das Problem? Gibt es dafür eine Lösung? Beim Ausführen des Objektes brechen WPs ab und und es werden Quarantäne Meldungen erzeugt.
    Wir wollen im Juni auf V12.0.1 Upgrade und uns bleibt so nur eine sehr lange Liste aus dem Upgrade Checker aus dem Automic Download-Bereich.

    Das war beim Umstieg von V8 auf V10 besser.

    It’s really annoyingly, that the tool is not completely working in case the Automation Engine version is lower than 10.0.6. Unfortunately it’s because of a bug, so there is no simple trick to get it working completely.




    However, in case of some SQLI should not be performed during the check, they can be renamed. The tool doesn’t run SQLIs with a different object name prefix than “CYCK”.

    In the following example2 SQLIs were renamed to “OUT.OF.ACTION_CYCK…”, so they were skipped during the check:

    9lx17c1jhxct.pnghttps://us.v-cdn.net/5019921/uploads/editor/m6/9lx17c1jhxct.png" width="1165">

    Maybe this can help to get the tool running – rename SQLIs which causes the WP crash.




    There is not additional description for the tool. The tool itself uses regular object and functions, which are described in the documentation anyhow.

    It is recommended to use the tool tougher or in parallel with the upgrade documentation: 
    https://docs.automic.com/documentation/webhelp/english/AWA/12.0/DOCU/12.0/AWA%20Guides/help.htm#AWA/Installation/install_upgrade_v10.htm%3FTocPath%3DInstallation%2520Guide%7CInstalling%2520the%2520Automation%2520Engine%7CUpgrade%2520Installation%7C_____4

    The “Check Incompatibilities between Versions …” sections on this page can be used as description and guideline for the results given by the tool.

    For example:More information about the SQLI “CYCK.SQLI.GET_VAR.RECURSIVE.RESOLUTION” with object title “11.1 - GET_VAR does not resolve recursively anymore.” can be found at section “3. Check Incompatibilities between Version 10 and11.1” on the page mentioned above:

    Hopefully this helps a little bit.

    Hallo Herr Josef_Scharl_103 , hallo PhilippElmer ,

    ich habe mir gerade die Releasenotes angesehen. Woe komme ich zur Voraussetzung 2 (PackageManager 1.2.0 and above is required.) Downloaden kann ich die ja. Und welche ist die richtige? Es gibt ja auch Version 2.x und 3.x, die finde ich aber nicht im Compatibility Checker. Und eine Dokumentation dazu gibt es auch nicht, weder online noch als Download.

    Danke und Gruß

    Hello HolgerMundhahsVTG

    The Compatibility Matrix shows the dependencies of Package Manager and Automation Engine.

    Here an example: Package Manger version 3.0 requires Automation Engine 12.1:
    https://docs.automic.com/tools/compatibility_matrix?compatibility-mode=component&offering_version_id=components&lifecycle_entity_id=1411489691490&version_id=1494507772867

    I think there is some description within the package and some in this discussion.

    Hallo Herr Josef_Scharl_103 ,

    danke für die schnelle Antwort. Da muss ich irgendwo falsch geklickt haben, weil so ist das ja einfach zu finden.

    Wenn man mit dem PM Probleme hat ein Ticket aufmachen oder können/wollen Sie hier helfen? Der Download klappt nämlich nicht:

    Hallo HolgerMundhahsVTG ,

    Ich denke wir sind in diesem Thread jetzt off topic.

    Wenn Sie Problem mit dem Package Manager, dann bitte in einer passenden Diskussion hier im Forum behandeln oder ein Ticket beim Support aufmachen.

    Ich kann nur sagen, dass ich das Package runterladen konnte und dann mit PM v2 und v3 laden konnte.

    Hallo Herr Josef_Scharl_103,
    das Problem ist mittlerweile geklärt. Die Meldung kommt wohl, weil wohl auf der Ziel-URL http und https-Dinge gemixed werden. DL und Import hat nun funktioniert.
    Danke und Gruß

    I am very new to the compatibility checker.  Can someone guide me to documentation, or give me steps of how to install and use the compatibility checker? 

    Thanks in Advance.

    Hello Ramanujam_Paravastu_6362

    After downloading the Upgrade Checker from marketplace it can be installed using the Plugin Manager.

    In case "Packs" is not available in Clint 0 the Plugin Manager needs to be installed first:
    Installation Guide > Installing Plugin Manager > About Plugin Manager

    Hallo Zusammen,

    ich hatte gelesen, dass der Upgrade Checker in Version 10.0.6 eine Herausforderung darstellt und bei Version 10.0.02 gar nicht läuft. Könnte das auch  schon für Version 10.0.4 zutreffen ?

    Ich wünsche ein schönes Woende !

    Also auf unserer 10.0.3 lief er ohne Probleme.
